This blog will follow one year of home-manicures; hopefully each one will be crazier and cooler than the last.

Week 32: Beaches
I guess I'm still in vacation mode because this week's manicure features a sunset beach scene.
Salt and Nailpolish aka sand
To create the sand I mixed a tan polish with a coppery polish and some salt I used the flat end of an orange stick to mix and apply the "sand."I created the water by mixing a dark blue with a sheer,sparkly green and applied it with a sponge (the tip of an eyeshadow applicator.) To make the sunset I started with a sheer purple base then mixed a metalic mauve and yellow and applied it with a sponge on top and then in the center I added an extra dab of yellow with the other side of the sponge - still an eyeshadow applicator. The manicure turned out pretty good considering I did my nails in the light from my bedside lamp and couldn't really see what I was doing, but I guess that's why it's good to use a sponge it makes all smudging and mixing look intentional.
I used every single one of these supplies! And yes that is a graduation themed paper plate
